It's not a secret that Phil Hellmuth has a big problem with his temper when playing poker. Even though Phil has a huge bankroll and probably seen it all when it comes to bad beats, he still can't control his feelings after so many years of experience. For quite some time now many of the world's best poker players have been trying to help Phil (in many different ways) to deal with his temper - but most of them have given up. Tony G, however, refuses to give up and in a recent video interview he said the following about his dear friend Phil Hellmuth. 

"Phil is a very nice person away from the poker table. But at the poker table he's mentally unstable and needs professional help", Tony G told the interviewer.

"He has gotten one of those headshrinkers to help him now, and I also try to help him. One just feel like taking care of Phil. I lead him, just like my dog.

Both Cole South and Hansen tried to convince Phil Ivey to leave the table several times, but it was like talking to a wall. Phil Ivey refused to leave the table or answer them. After a while Ivey's ignorance became too much for Gus Hansen....
